Dimmesdale is a hypocritical reverend that does not confess his sin, and Chillingworth who is the knowledgeable physician, does not treat his patient. As a result of his actions, the Clergyman’s health rapidly declined until the end where he was brought to the scaffold to ,“die this death of triumphant ignominy before the people!”(Hawthorne 383). This may seem like a strange story now but when studied and compared to the writing era it originated from, all aspects of Romanticism fit. Each main character in the story has their own unique personality full of conflicting thoughts and complex emotions. Every time Dimmesdale clenched his chest in pain or wallowed in self-pity, he did not feel only one thing, but felt several.
The poems may address different victims fallen to death, but they both have similarities such as: use of metaphors, personification, Tone and mood. The poem “Ode to a Large Tuna in the Market” is very choppy in its structure with the use of a lot of similes and repetition.

Both poems are obviously about death and they may contrast in some respect, but they have a lot in common. Metaphors are used throughout both poems.

In the second stanza, Auden directly addresses this painting and is thorough in his description of it. In it, Icarus, a figure of Greek mythology that flies too close to the sun, falls into the sea since his wings had molten. He crashes, “the white legs disappearing into the green water” (lines 18-19), yet none of the bystanders, neither “the ploughman” who has “heard the splash, the forsaken cry” (lines 15-16) nor “the expensive delicate ship that must have seen something amazing” (lines 19-20) come to his rescue to save him from drowning. The ploughman’s attitude towards the fall, since “for him it was not an important failure” (line 17) further trivializes the tragic proceedings. Even the sun, responsible for Icarus’ fall, is depicted as showing indifference towards Icarus’ fate through an apparent obligation because it “shone as it had to” (line 17-18).

He is battling his ambition with his morals.

Even though he can never really rescind his previous actions, he still uses them as a guide towards refraining from repeating the same missteps.
